R. Kelly is facing more tax problems as the IRS hit him with a new bill citing that he owes over $6 million dollars in back taxes. This is not the first time he has had tax problems as last year he was hit oweing more then $1 million in tax debt.
R. Kelly has a “put it on my tab” approach to his taxes … because TMZ has learned his ever-expanding tax bill has just increased by more than a million bucks. According to documents filed in Illinois, the “Trapped in the Closet” singer owes Uncle Sam a cool $1,379,695.11 for unpaid taxes for the year 2011. As TMZ first reported, Kelly already owes $4,848,072.71 in unpaid taxes for the years 2005-2010. That brings his total to a cool $6,227,767.82. Seems his accountant has been trapped in a closet for the past seven years. A rep for Kelly tells TMZ, “He takes this very seriously and is already communicating with the IRS about the payment process to quickly resolve the issue.”
The federal government is pissed at R. Kelly … for failing to pay a whopping $4.8 million in back taxes … TMZ has learned. According to documents filed by the IRS, Kelly owes money on his taxes going way back to 2005. It breaks down like this … 2005 – $1,472,366.77 2006 – $710,520.51 2007 – $376,180.11 2008 – $1,122,694.90 2009 – $173,815.18 2010 – $992,495.24 … for a total of $4,848,072.71. Being trapped in the closet probably won’t cut it as an excuse. A rep for Kelly tells TMZ, “R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied.”
